Not sure what it is, but I don't believe the pure BS of the "fireworks" theory.

It's widespread & these are all recent. Could this have started some chain reaction due to the gulf spill?? You know, it WAS just the largest environmental disaster in history & the stupid media never talks about it anymore (and neither do most people). FYI, just because they plugged up the damn hole doesn't mean it's "fixed".

"Cold stress", "fireworks scared the birds to death", etc. All BS if you ask me. Something's up.

I remember about 10 years ago a bunch of starlings dying on UKs campus. It was right after a cold snap. Walking to class, there were hundreds of dead birds everywhere.

Wonder if the birds were even from this time frame, they could have been caught in some alternate dimension or reality and just flew themselves to death and been caught in the void for centuries until a rift opened up and they finally fell to Earth in Kentucky

I don't think its a coincidence that all of this is happening around large bodies of water (obviously the fish, but the birds too).

I really wish the fireworks thing was taken off the books. It's total BS and you have to be a moron to believe that is the real cause. My guess is it has something to do with the weather. We have been going through some extreme weather changes here. Wasn't it around 61 one day and got up to only 32 the next, around a couple weeks ago or less?

I watched the 6:00 news on Channel 6 about the birds. Can't remember the street that was on by 16th, but looked like it was close to campus. You know where it is kentuckydad?
